IDM Computer Solution‘s UltraEdit claims to be the #1 and simply the world’s best text editor in the world. Actually this’s relative, just as a lot of reviews for some great software you can see in AppNee – most of which depend on personal use experience and habits. Anyhow, we can’t deny that UltraEdit is really powerful.

As a super powerful text/code editor being capable of meeting all your needs on text editing, UltraEdit can skillfully handle text, hexadecimal, ASCII…, and replace Windows Notepad completely. It has built-in English words spellcheck, supports C++ and VB instructions highlighting, allows to edit multiple files at the same time, and even be able to open a very big file quickly. It supports displaying HTML tags in color, searching/replacing and the super cool unlimited restore functionality. Besides, for software cracking lovers, it is usually used to modify the executable files like EXE or DLL.
